RFI/EMI shielding gaskets and components from Kemtron showcased at Southern 2017 include highly conductive elastomers which consist of silicone and fluorosilicones loaded with conductive particles such as silver plated copper, silver plated aluminium and nickel coated graphite. These elastomers can be extruded in various gasket profiles, moulded as components or sheet for die cutting.
Knitted wire mesh gasket strip in either monel, tin plated copper clad steel, stainless steel or aluminium are also available. It is, says the company, still the most cost- effective, all round performing EMI gasket where large profiles and magnetic shielding are required
Also exhibited will be EMI-shielded, honeycomb vent panels in aluminium or steel. These are suitable for maintaining air flow into an electronics enclosure while still ensuring EMC integrity. To achieve optimum RF attenuation, the cell thickness to cell diameter ratio needs to be 4:1. The company can also offer single layer styles where lower levels of shielding performance versus reduced thickness is required.
Visitors will also see conductive fabric over foam gasket strip, beryllium copper finger strips, shielded optical windows for display devices.
